Registering your interest

If you are interested in offering your services as a supervisor, please fill in the simple web form accessible from the following link

http://cambridge.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_1Ms8PhcF8q9psJT

The Teaching Office will make the data from these forms available to College Directors of Studies and others who are looking for supervisors.

Please note that the Teaching Office does not assign supervisors.  Registering your interest in becoming a supervisor does not guarantee that you will be called on to supervise.

Briefing and training

University policy is that all supervisors must be trained. Part of this is a subject-specific talk (given at the start of the year for new postgraduates), the key points from which are summarized in the Guide to supervision (see below).

Details of the various kinds of training, gathered together under the title Effective Undergraduate Supervision, offered by the University are available by following this link.  This includes an on-line training module which new supervisors are expected to follow.

The Center for Personal and Professional Development (CPPD) also runs courses for supervisors. Goto http://www.training.cam.ac.uk/gdp/ and enter supervising into the search function

Handouts and other materials

Supervisors versions of handouts, solutions to exercises, past tripos papers and suggested solutions to these are available on Moodle. If you need access to this, please EMAIL Bethan Lewis explaining which year you a supervising (e.g. Part IA, Part IB Chem A, Part IB Chem B, Part II or Part III)  (bcl27@cam.ac.uk).

Submitting your reports

To submit your reports and claim payment for supervisions you will need a CamCORS account: this can be set up for you by the Tutorial Office of the College for which you are supervising. The Chemistry teaching office cannot set up CamCORS accounts.
